The fishy goings on involving ousted Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick continues to surface.

The Detroit Free Press reported that the FBI and IRS in August contacted the chairman of Detroit-based Compuware in August to inquire about a $240,000 loan he and other businessmen made to Kilpatrick.

Kilpatrick was forced to resign, serve jail time and pay $1 million in restitution to the city after he pleaded guilty in 2008 to lying under oath in court.

The information about the FBI-IRS probe surfaced during a court hearing Tuesday on Kilpatrick’s ability to pay restitution to the city. He has been ordered to pay $6,000 a month, but he has claimed he can’t afford it.

“Someone is paying for his restitution, and he is claiming to this court that he has the inability to pay when he in fact is not paying for it himself,” said Assistant Wayne County Prosecutor Athina Siringas, according to the Detroit News. “Money just keeps on appearing and people just keep on giving.”
